with anybody to get this job done. none of us will get 100% of what we want. but nobody should want these cuts to go through, because the last thing our families can afford right now is pain imposed unnecessarily by partisan recklessness and ideological rigidity here in washington. the american people have worked too hard rebuilding to see their elected officials to cause yet another one. it seems like every three months around here some manufactured crisis. we have more work to do than to just try to dig ourselves out of these self-inflicted wounds. while a plan to reduce our deficit has to be part of our agenda, we also have to remember deficit reduction alone is not an economic plan. we learned in the 1990s whether bill clinton was president, nothing shrinks the deficit faster than a growing economy that creates good, middle class jobs. that should be our driving focus. making american a magnet for good jobs. equipping our people with the skills required to fill those jobs and making sure their hard work leads to a decent living. those are the things we should be pushing ourselves to think
of the first time was he didn't tell the people where he's trying to take the country so he will use minnesota which you mentioned, it has a record of reducing violent crime particularly gun crime over the last decade. a decade and a half. you saw this last week, the president did it on immigration. he will do it again here with gun control. he will keep doing it and try to mobilize the american people to sort of put pressure on congress. >> chris, you would think the president would get the most support from within his own party. when we talk about harry reid and his affiliation with the nra, we are reminded of his thoughts about the nra this weekend with george stephanopoulos. take a look. >> i have been supported by the nra on occasion. i know wayne lapierre. he has always been extremely pleasant to me. we have a good relationship. so i am not here to demean the organization. >> not there to demean the organization. he has been a benefactor of campaign contributions from them. the nra spending in 2012, just to show everybody, $1 million in direct contributions to elected leaders, $25 millio
my district is fort knox, 5,000 civilian employees of the u.s. army. there will be substantial furloughs and possibly layoffs there if the sequester were in effect for any length of time. so we've got a few days to act. i think we could actually come up with something that just delays the sequester until march 27th. then we would have four weeks in session. we'll all be back for four consecutive weeks to figure out how to fund the government for the rest of the year. because it's -- none of it's going to make any difference after march 27th because the government runs out of money then. >> all right. so you're saying push it off just a little bit further after you get back into a legislative session but as we look at what john boehner has responded by putting out a couple tweets this morning roughly right before we went on the air, talking about where the president has been saying president obama is virtually absent from legislative process and making no discernible effort to replace mishiss sequester. he went on to say mr. president we agree your sequester is bad policy. what
to the massive budget cuts. what does the deadline show us about what's going on inside congress? >> they only care about their decades' long, decades old gun control agenda. ban every gun they can, tax every gun sold, and register every american gun owner. >> the president of the nra is a popular guy among hard-core gun rights advocates but among those concerned with the brand of the gop, he's become something very different. we'll talk about that plus a little bit later,' banned big sodas, kicked smokers out of new york city bars and restaurants. what's this guy got up his sleeve now? we'll talk about that as well. >>> first some developing news to bring you right now, republican senator marco rubio is now on his way to the middle east, right now. the senator says he will be visiting israel, he will be visiting jordan as well. senator rubio made that announcement about his trip on his website this morning, said he was traffic in his role as a member of the intelligence and foreign relations committees. his trip, of course, comes in advance of trips to israel planned by secretary of state joh

is no longer with us. >> when you said officers are still in great fear, do they it doubt that this is over? >> again, if it were your family placed in jeopardy, not knowing for certain that the person that was threatening your family is no longer around and the threat no longer exists, that's a concern. so there are some families who are literally traumatized. they have young children. they have people who have schools that their kids go to and there's great fear still. that's a trauma they have to recover from. i don't have any information related to accomplices or any other person's involvement. those are parts of this investigation we have to examine and look into. >> can you comment on what the feeling was like? >> like many of you, we were listening on local internet channels that allowed us to monitor aid owe frequency. it was horrifying to listen to that fire fight and to hear those words officer down is the the most gut wrenching experience you can have as a police officer. because you know what that me means. and tragically, we learned that it truly meant just that yesterday. >> i

the international community to confront challenges today and must use tools of american power to protect our citizens and our interests. do you think he was lying? >> no, i just think that chuck hag hagel has a long history of supporting whatever happens to be popular at the time. wherever people are looking for something, he's going to provide that, which is why we wanted to see some of his speeches he's given, some of the sources of income that he's received. so we can say, okay, he may say this on one day, but look what he said on another day. >> sir, i want to get on the record take about wayne lapierre going to give an official nra response to the president's state of the union. he put out an op-ed in which he said after hurricane sandy, we saw the hellish world the gun prohibitionists as their utopia. you better get back before dark or you might not get home at all. do you support his position and how he wants to describe what it means to have gun violence regulation in this country to scare people into thinking we all need to be packing? >> well, i think we need to take a couple of st
